Brunel Shares Climate Reporting Progress

The Brunel Pension Partnership has prioritised transparency in its climate reporting, exceeding requirements outlined under the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework. The UK pension fund’s latest climate change progress report outlined how the asset owner performed last year against a range of climate targets, and set out plans to accelerate reporting this year. “Our progress report captures the delivery on our investor commitments towards Paris alignment, including targets now covering 85% of our AUM,” said Faith Ward, Chief Responsible Investment Officer at Brunel. Ahead of the 2024 reporting round, Brunel chose to accelerate progress by operationalising requirements. Its methodologies will have enhanced reporting on averages specific to industry sectors and proxies for Enterprise Value including Cash (EVIC). In addition, Brunel has focused on including additional qualitative context to support its data disclosures, as demonstrated in its climate-related product report. “Climate reporting at Brunel has a dual role – to improve the delivery of our climate ambitions across our portfolios, and to set a standard that resonates across the wider industry,” said Laura Chappell, Brunel’s CEO. Brunel is one of eight UK pooled local government pension schemes.
